Then when Ralph says, ‘If Simon walks in the middle of us, then we can talk over his head,’ this shows that they are viewing him as unimportant already and he doesn’t seem to be allowed a view on the situation, also he is made out to be quire brave for a skinny little boy and he follows Jack and Ralph wherever they go. So even thought he is considered to be an outsider he still plays a big role in the boys planning and then eventually their tasks/problems/issues. Near the end of their expedition in to the jungle, Simon quotes about a flower they find, ‘Candles, candle bushes, candle buds,’ and the reaction compared of the three boys, Simon, Jack and Ralph is startlingly different. Jack reacts by slashing into one of them and examining the insides and then finally concluding to the rest of them that they cannot be eaten and therefore are useless, then Ralph automatically finds out that they cannot be used as candles, so are useless as well but Simon just stays quiet and admires the beauty of the plant, he is sensitive and in tune
It is noted that none of the “bigguns”, except for Simon, act kindly towards the littluns. As the book progresses they bully the littluns more and more. However Simon is different, he always behaves out of his moral values. There are many incidents which reflect this idea such as picking fruits for the littluns, helping with the construction of the shelters and giving Piggy his share of pork etc. Because of his consistency he becomes the measure of morality on the island; his death reflects the diminishing morality and sense on the island.

Ralph is honest, compared to Jack, who lied when he said that Ralph had called the hunters cowards. Although he was the leader Ralph was prepared to pitch in and do work on the shelters while Jack, as chief of his tribe, expected to be waited on by the other boys. Both boys seem to judge others by their own
